Not slothful he, though seeming unemploy'd
And censured oft as useless. Silent streams
Oft water fairest meadows, and the bird
That flutters least is longest on the wing.


The idea of her life shall sweetly creep
Into his study of imagination ;
And every lovely organ of her life
Shall come apparell'd in more precious habit,
Into the eye and prospect of his soul,
Than when she lived indeed.


The sun is dying like a cloven king
In his own blood; the while the distant moon,
Like a pale prophetess, whom he has wrong'd,
Leans eager forward, with most hungry eyes,
Watching him bleed to death, and, as he faints,
She brightens and dilates ; revenge complete,
She walks in lonely triumph through the night.


O that sweet influence of thoughts and looks!
That change of being, which, to one who lives,
Is nothing less divine than divine life
To the unmade! Love? Do I love? I walk
Within the brilliance of another's thought,
As in a glory.

Star-sisters, answering under crescent brows.
She smote me with the light of eyes
That lent my knee desire to kneel, and shook
My pulses.

LITERATURE. The want of a well-selected series of French Translations has long been felt by three classes of readers : those who are altogether ignorant of the language; those who know it so slightly as not to be able to appreciate its beauties of style and redundancies of meaning; and those who, although well able to do so, have neither the time nor the means at hand to prosecute any very extensive researches into the more recondite provinces of French Literature.

To supply the wants of these three classes we propose to issue a series of translations, embracing one entire cycle of literary progress, extending from Mme. de Sévigné to the French Revolution. These translations will be executed in the best possible manner, and a conscientious endeavour will be made to render them not merely transcripts of the sepse, but also correct reflexes of the style. The selections from each author will be made with the double view of rendering the collection as entertaining and as instructive as possible, and also of giving the most striking samples of that author's beauties and peculiarities; they will be prefixed by a comprehensive memoir of each author, and will be supplied with such annotations as may be necessary fully to explain the text. All passages tending against morality or the principles of religion will be carefully excluded from the selection.

In carrying out this idea, it is not the intention of the projectors to confine themselves to those great authors whose names are most conspicuous in French Literature. Many authors of less note, but not inferior interest, will be admitted, and some of them will probably be introduced for the first time to the English reader.

The series will appear in fortnightly numbers, containing thirty-two pages foolscap 8vo., at Threepence per number, so that two volumes, of 350 pages each, will be issued in the course of a year.
